Summary

The workshop will teach kids about AI and Machine learning. They will learn how we can train the machine (Laptop in this case) to respond to their input in the correct way and play a sound, display a GIF, or read a text. They will use a tool called “Teachable Machine” for this workshop.

What You'll Need

 

The Instructions

AI and Sound

The participants will learn how to train the machine (Laptop in this case) to respond to the user input (images through camera) in the correct way and play a specific sound.

1- Presentation introducing the meaning of AI, the steps of machine learning, and examples of real devices that have AI.

2- Explaining how the website works; takes pictures through the camera of the laptop as input, then displays different output based of how each color is trained.

3- The three colors (orange, purple, green) represent different input categories, the user should train each color on a specific input (image from the computer).

4- The participants will start by training the first color (green) by doing a hand gesture then long pressing on the “Train green” button. This will take multiple pictures of the hand gesture and attach it to this color.

5- The participants then can choose the sound output for that color, which can be an instrument.

6- They will repeat the same procedure to train the two other colors, using different hand gestures and different sound outputs.

7- The participants must make sure that their hand is fixed and not moving while they are pressing on the “Train (color)” button. This is to make it easier for the computer to differentiate between the different colors.

AI and Expression

The participants will learn how to train the machine (Laptop in this case) to respond to the user input (images through camera) in the correct way and read a specific text.

1- Presentation introducing the meaning of AI, the steps of machine learning, and examples of real devices that have AI.

2- Explaining how the website works; takes pictures through the camera of the laptop as input, then displays different output based of how each color is trained.

3- The three colors (orange, purple, green) represent different input categories, the user should train each color on a specific input (image from the computer).

4- The participants will start by training the first color (green) by doing a facial expression then long pressing on the “Train green” button. This will take multiple pictures of the facial expression and attach it to this color.

5- The participants then can write the text output for that color, which can be read by the computer.

6- They will repeat the same procedure to train the two other colors, using different hand gestures and different sound outputs.

7- The participants must make sure that their facial expression is fixed and not changing while they are pressing on the “Train (color)” button. This is to make it easier for the computer to differentiate between the different colors.

AI and GIFs

The participants will learn how to train the machine (Laptop in this case) to respond to the user input (images through camera) in the correct way and display a specific GIF.

1- Presentation introducing the meaning of AI, the steps of machine learning, and examples of real devices that have AI.

2- Explaining how the website works; takes pictures through the camera of the laptop as input, then displays different output based of how each color is trained.

3- The three colors (orange, purple, green) represent different input categories, the user should train each color on a specific input (image from the computer).

4- The participants will be asked to draw 3 drawing of basic objects (house, car, flower, etc.) on a paper.

5- The participants will start by training the first color (green) by showing the first drawing in front of the camera then long pressing on the “Train green” button. This will take multiple pictures of the drawing and attach it to this color.

5- The participants then can choose the GIF output which represents that drawing.

6- They will repeat the same procedure to train the two other colors, using different drawings and different GIF outputs.

7- The participants must make sure that their paper drawing is fixed and not moving while they are pressing on the “Train (color)” button. This is to make it easier for the computer to differentiate between the different colors.
